Lezbijska organizacija Rijeka - LORI prijavila je homofobni govor mržnje („Ubi pedera“) koji je počinitelj ispisao na staklu izloga Gradske vijećnice grada Rijeke 24. listopada 2020. godine. Čin ispisivanja homofobne poruke mržnje nije remećenje javnog reda i mira, već je ono kazneno djelo za koje kazna zatvora može biti duga do 3 godine.
With enormous excitement we announce the Queer-UP! Party as part of this year's Smoqua! Are you ready?! Let’s celebrate LORI’s 20th birthday and close this year’s Smoqua with a huge celebration of love and joy in all our diversity! For the first time in Croatia, from Sweden comes the multimedia artist GNUČČI, from Rijeka DJ Mirilo, and from Belgium drag artist Eve Is Sick of Adam.
The Feminist Walk Around Rijeka will be held in Rijeka for the first time within this year's Smoqua festival as a common initiative of the Center for Women's Studies of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Rijeka and the LORI. The guided walk intends to inform the public about the unfamiliar or tacit contributions of women for Rijeka and the wider community.
As part of this year's Smoqua, which will be held in Rijeka from October 15th to 17th, besides from entertaining and artistic content, you can join a discussion on the human rights of LGBTI people in Europe and Croatia and one on women's experiences in the visual industry.
